I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information. Please may you provide me with:
* A breakdown of the different mechanisms you have used to distribute the Household Support Fund to vulnerable families, e.g. cash, food parcels, vouchers, investment in existing schemes / services such as food banks (these are examples, not an exhaustive list)

* What amount/proportion of the funds were distributed through each method used?

* Have you evaluated the success or benefits of specific methods used to distribute funds and if so, how did you do so, i.e. what Key Performance Indicators do you set?

* Have you made decisions yet about disbursement tools for current and future grants and, if so, what mechanisms are you planning to use?

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.
